Vacation Spot #5: Acuatico, Laiya, San Juan, Batangas
What to love: Located along the picture-perfect stretch of Laiya’s beach, Acuatico is a beautiful setting where one can enjoy frolicking in the sand. Kids can also play indoors in the game room, where an impressive selection of toys await them. The staff is on-point and eager to please.
What to check out: • Families can spend some quality time in one of the Balinese-inspired villas and rooms. All rooms are fully furnished for a relaxing stay. • While the beach may be inviting, the star of the resort is the infinity edge pool. Enjoy some refreshments, imported ice cream, cocktails, and light snacks at the Acua Floating Bar. • The cuisine served at the resort’s Oceano Restaurant is a must. It serves the best Batangas favorite hereabouts: lomi with puto. • Couples might want to try out the signature full body massage treatments at the newly opened Simona Spa.
Traveler’s Tips: • Take the camera and laptop along. The Wi-Fi connection is particularly very strong throughout the resort. One can easily log in to Facebook by the pool area and upload photos of the ongoing family vacation.
Money Matters: Expect to spend an average of P8,000 for a family of two adults and two kids.
